Semi-Formal: Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party 2015

Friday, December 11, 2015

The winter season is upon us, readers! As some of you may know, I became a sister of Gamma Phi Beta this semester at my university and it has been nothing but fun and unexpected surprises - including a trip to Walt Disney World. Instead of having a fancy Semi-Formal, we went to Magic Kingdom to attend Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party; as a big Disney person already, you could probably imagine my excitement when I found out this would be happening. I took along my boyfriend as my date and he was pumped to get to meet a few of my sisters.

Our night started out with tons of rides - the lines to all of the attractions are really short during the Christmas Party! (#blessed) We also stopped for complimentary hot chocolate and cookies throughout the night many times (mainly because my boyfriend was a teensy bit obsessed... he may have had about 5 cups). After all of that, we watched Celebrate the Magic!, a nightly show that features projections on the castle - and this time, there were special Christmas features! The Holiday Wishes fireworks followed, and it was an amazing show filled with holiday classics and beautiful lights.

My boyfriend and I didn't mean to end up watching the Christmas Parade, but we're extremely glad we did get stuck in the crowds and have to wait! It was definitely my favorite part of the entire Party; I would recommend not skipping out on it if you go. All the floats were spectacular and featured Disney characters as well as the big man himself (children were extremely excited to see him, of course).

I had such a wonderful night and I'm so grateful to have been able to not only go to the Christmas Party, but also be a part of a sisterhood that gives me more love and support than I could have ever imagined it would. It has been an absolutely wonderful semester, and I'm extremely excited for what's to come in the future. I would for sure recommend attending the Very Merry Christmas Party if you ever consider going, it is such a great and memorable holiday experience that you will never forget with people near and dear to your heart!

What are some of your plans for the upcoming winter break?
